  • Human motion prediction via spatio-temporal inpainting 

    Hernández Ruiz, Alejandro José; Gall, Juergen; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We propose a Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) to forecast 3D human motion given a sequence of past 3D skeleton poses. While recent GANs have shown promising results, they can only forecast plausible motion over relatively ...
  • Observer design for Takagi-Sugeno Lipschitz systems affected by disturbances using quadratic boundedness 

    Yang, Ruicong; Rotondo, Damiano; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper, a proportional observer design using quadratic boundedness is proposed in order to estimate the state of a system described by a Takagi-Sugeno model with a Lipschitz nonlinearity term, and affected by unknown ...
  • Seeing and hearing egocentric actions: how much can we learn? 

    Cartas Ayala, Alejandro; Luque, Jordi; Radeva, Petia; Segura, Carlos; Dimiccoli, Mariella (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Our interaction with the world is an inherently multi-modal experience. However, the understanding of human-to-object interactions has historically been addressed focusing on a single modality. In particular, a limited ...
  • Unsupervised image-to-video clothing transfer 

    Pumarola Peris, Albert; Goswami, Vedanuj; Vicente, Francisco; De La Torre, Fernando; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We present a system to photo-realistically transfer the clothing of a person in a reference image into another person in an unconstrained image or video. Our architecture is based on a GAN equipped with a physical memory ...
  • 3DPeople: modeling the geometry of dressed humans 

    Pumarola Peris, Albert; Sánchez Riera, Jordi; Choi, Gary; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Recent advances in 3D human shape estimation build upon parametric representations that model very well the shape of the naked body, but are not appropriate to represent the clothing geometry. In this paper, we present an ...
  • Absolute humanoid localization and mapping based on IMU Lie group and fiducial markers 

    Fourmy, Mederic; Atchuthan, Dinseh; Mansard, Nicolas; Solà Ortega, Joan; Flayols, Thomas (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Current locomotion algorithms in structured (in-door) 3D environments require an accurate localization. The several and diverse sensors typically embedded on legged robots (IMU, coders, vision and/or LIDARS) should make ...
  • Economic MPC-LPV control for the operational management of water distribution networks 

    Karimi Pour, Fatemeh; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (Elsevier, 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents an Economic Model Predictive Control (EMPC) for the operational management of water distribution networks (WDNs) with periodic operation based on embedding the nonlinearity of the model to the Linear ...
  • Human-robot collaborative navigation search using social reward sources 

    Dalmasso Blanch, Marc; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Jimenez Schlegl, Pablo; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper proposes a Social Reward Sources (SRS) design for a Human-Robot Collaborative Navigation (HRCN) task: human-robot collaborative search. It is a flexible approach capable of handling the collaborative task, ...
  • Timed-elastic smooth curve optimization for mobile-base motion planning 

    Deray, Jeremie; Magyar, Bence; Solà Ortega, Joan; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper proposes the use of piecewise Cn smooth curve for mobile-base motion planning and control, coined Timed-Elastic Smooth Curve (TESC) planner. Based on a Timed-Elastic Band, the problem is defined so that the ...
  • Anticipatory science fiction to foster ethical debates on AI and robotics 

    Torras, Carme (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The influence that hyperconnectivity and our increasing interaction with machines will have on the evolution of society and on people’s daily lives is difficult to predict. Thus, when trying to anticipate the potential ...
  • Frequency-based detection of replay attacks: application to a quadrotor UAV 

    Sánchez Corrales, Helem Sabina; Rotondo, Damiano; Lopez Vidal, Marc; Quevedo Casín, Joseba Jokin (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are reported to be highly exposed as possible targets of cyber attacks, due to their strong strategic and economic value, and their increasing use in a wide range of operations. Among the ...
  • Unidimensional multiscale local features for object detection under rotation and mild occlusions 

    Villamizar Vergel, Michael Alejandro; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (Springer, 2007)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this article, scale and orientation invariant object detection is performed by matching intensity level histograms. Unlike other global measurement methods, the present one uses a local feature description that allows ...
